Looking more and more like Spring

Tonight: Low temperatures will still be cold and there are a few river basins that could experience some light fog into Saturday morning (looking toward the Eagle River and around the Gunnison for these hazards). Otherwise a clear and dry night is expected across the Western Slope. Temperature lows are still running below the average for this time of the year.

Tomorrow: Added warmth, a few more degrees will be added to the afternoon high on Saturday with a mostly clear sky. Dry conditions and a light wind veering in from the east and north throughout the day. A seasonal norm temperature for G.J is close to the middle 50s//Montrose is in the low 50s. Both areas for the start of this weekend are expected to pass those norms with a few extra degrees.

Extended: The afternoon warming trend could slow a bit on Sunday as added clouds fill the sky. Some light rain/snow will be possible late Sunday for the southern mountains, but a continuation of the DRY pattern is expected for all other Western Slope locations. Our warming trend will get a Spring boost for the start of next week and a few afternoons in the middle and upper 60s are not out of the question for a few locations. Late next week a storm system may enter our region for a round of valley rain/mountain snow, but the trend right now for that is losing confidence.
